2013-04-27. Crisp dark golden amber body. Small off white head and lace. 3+ Aroma of modest hops, slightly odd English meets American hops. A not quite tangy quality to it. Flavour is similar, modest bitterness, odd character to the hops. Average plus palate. Okay, did not really care for it overall. On tap at Blackback Pub, Waterbury.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 The Lure:
Petite flowers and leaves grow under the fruity caramel maltiness. Subtle, but well positioned.
Citrusy and floral hops are ably balanced with the caramel and papaya fruitiness. Carbonation cannot overcome the important caramel, which is appreciated in this well-crafted, malty bitter to accompany your scrumptious pizza.
A pair of overalls, and to work we go.

Pours a clear deep copper with a nice, frothy, off-white and well-lacing head. Aroma is lightly caramel malty with a nice hoppy presence. Body is full, crisp, and malty, but more bitter than most ESBs. Finishes somewhat clean with some stinging carbonation. An ok version of the style.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draught at American Flatbread. Pours reddish with a thin pinkish head. Smells of bitter hops and malt. Taste lacks the fruitiness of a good ESB and is on the hoppy side.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber-orange assorted with a fitting off-white cover. Sweet caramelized malts dominate the flavour profile from the beginning until the end, appearing just a tiny bit underattenuated. Backing hops are mostly citrusy, hinting at a pretty good balance in the nose that does not concretise. It rather grows an accustoming bready toastiness. Light bodied, rather watery texture, active carbonation.
